Education and Extracurricular Activites

“The best way to predict your future is to create it”
-Abraham Lincoln 

Hey everyone! My name is Maddie and I enjoy school very much and would like to advance further into my education. I would love to go to these extracurricular events, but they come with a price. So you see, that is why I started my GoFundMe account. I have gotten straight A’s every single semester. So I have been invited to the National Beta Club. The National Beta Club is a club in the US for students 4th-12th grade that promotes the ideals of academic achievement, character, leadership, and service among elementary and secondary school students. My teacher nominated me to go to the Junior National Young Leaders Conference (JrNYLC) this summer, she believes that I had the most leadership out of my entire grade. The JrNYLC helps students discover how to enhance the essential leadership skills and learn how to apply those skills. The problem is that this trip is very expensive.Any donation would be greatly appreciated to help with my schooling and extra curricular events that come with me being in these clubs, it would help me grow towards more education and a better future.

A Note from Maddie’s Mother...

I couldn’t be more proud of Maddie. She truly has a passion for learning and excelling. It amazes me how much of a bright young lady she is becoming. I am so excited for her future. I truly see her going far in life. She has already made her mark in so many peoples lives at such a young age, I know she will continue to make her mark in others lives. Maddie has such a big heart and is so very loving and caring. Maddie doesn’t give up on her goals and passions. I am so proud to call her my daughter.
I would love for Maddie to be able to attend as many of these events through the clubs that she is in with school, however like everything, it comes with a price. Any donation to help her out with these awesome opportunities and her education would mean so much to our family and to Maddie. Maddie has a bright future ahead of her and we are excited to be by her side as she blossoms into the intelligent young lady that she is becoming. Thank you!!
-Katie (Maddie’s Mom)
